Dreamtime: An Australian Adventure with Barefoot Puppets

BUY TICKETS

Emus, and kangas, and frogs—oh my! Experience the magic of the Land Down Under as a mother platypus tries to lull her young one to sleep by sharing three stories inspired by Aboriginal folktales. In these how-and-why stories, learn how the emu became a flightless bird, why the platypus looks so strange, and meet a giant ocean-swallowing frog. Perhaps you’ll even be invited onstage to help the action unfold.
